WHAT WE DO

Educating & nurturing bright minds

Pestalozzi World selects the brightest children from the poorest areas in India, Africa and Nepal, to join our Pestalozzi programme that supports their secondary education, gives them a home at the Pestalozzi Villages and nurtures them through the Pestalozzi values.

What does this mean?
At 10 years old children come and live in our Pestalozzi villages where they learn to speak English and become prepared for there education at school. We teach them values inspired by Johan H Pestalozzi which encouraged an education that was more than academic, it was about becoming a well-rounded person, with a positive personality to help others, practical life skills and of course a master of study – he coined them; the Head, Heart, & Hands approach, to give children everything they need in succeed in life.

The staff who look after our children care greatly for their mental health  for Read more about the care and support our children receive, during their time with Pestalozzi World.

Where we work

Educating girls

Girls

Pestalozzi World take on more girls than boys to enter our programme, at a ratio of 2:3. The reasons why we do this are simple, girls are systematically more disadvantaged that boys in all societies that we work in, and the impact of change from a woman having been education is 5 times greater than if a man is educated. There are lots of reasons why this is the case that you can read more about here. 

 

The Girl Effect

PestalozziWorld believes in the power of girls to change the world…and the power of education to change the fate of girls.
